Doesnt he live at the North Pole? Not this Santa Claus. Hes a resident of the Lake Tahoe resort town of Incline Village, Nev.
Will votes for Santa be counted? Like Santa counts his reindeer. Hes one of 34 write-ins who filed necessary paperwork with the Idaho Secretary of States Office.
Other odd options: Comedian Roseanne Barr and Keith Judd, the Texas inmate who got 40 percent of the vote in the West Virginia primary against President Obama.
Write-ins from Idaho? Three: the Rev. Merepeace-Msmere of Boise, Gerald Warner of Moscow and Chance White of Pocatello.
Whos on the printed ballot? Obama, Mitt Romney, Libertarian Gary Johnson, former Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson, former U.S. Rep. Virgil Goode of Virginia and the Green Partys Jill Stein.
